Debian and its clones After reading many of the posts regarding the recent OSNews story, "An Unbiased Review of Debian 3.0", I thought this article may be useful to those who would like to try Debian, but are a little intimidated by its installer. Several of the posts to the above mentioned story indicated that Debian's installer was a huge hurtle for many people, who would otherwise like to try it. I have found Debian to be the most useful flavor of Linux, so I wanted to write an easy, though somewhat long, walkthrough in the hopes of allowing a wider audience to experience first hand this stable and unique Linux distribution.

Mandrake is very easy to install, but if that's not what you want than don't stand for it! If you really have the spirit, the gusto, the GNU/Linux Spirit, if you have listened to Richard M. Stallman up close and personal, you have to have GNU/LINUX! If you really want it and youre not just some lamer, then sit down and learn it. GNU/Linux isn't about spoon-feeding "customers", it is about creating a True OS. If you want Debian, Learn it! Learn it by reading lots and lots of books, tutorials, e-mail, and attend the Telluride Tech Festival!
